FEMICIDE is a leading cause of premature death for women globally, distinct from homicide and other forms of gender violence.

The Action on Femicide Across Europe established the first pan-European coalition on Femicide with interdisciplinary researchers already studying the phenomenon in their individual countries, in order to advance research clarity, agree on definitions, improve the efficacy of policies for Femicide prevention, and publish guidelines for the use of national policy-makers.

For the past years this action has worked on these issues, setting up four Working Groups:

Definitions;
Reporting;
Culture;
Prevention.

Four Workshops and an Action Conference were held annually attended by advocates and researchers alike. The Final Conference will bring to a close 4 years of work and discuss the Action's findings with policy-makers, academics, practitioners and other interested stakeholders.
